Matrix Screensaver For Mac Mojave


A screensaver based on the 'digital rain' appearing on computer screens in the popular The Matrix film trilogy, created by The Wachowski Brothers and starring Keanu Reeves as Neo. The speed, density, balance, noise and inversion of the characters in this 'rain' effect can be adjusted, and you can optionally even change the default green hues to any other colors.


If you are a Matrix Movie fan (like I am;)) looking for the Matrix Code screensaver for your Mac you can download this make it your screensaver! Your generous donations will be deeply helpful in development of updated screensaver software version for new OS X released. Please follow the following link to my blog's donation page. The 'digital rain' frequently seen on computer screens in the popular 1999 science fiction film The Matrix represents the composition of the virtual reality environment called the 'Matrix'. The downward-flowing green characters were ideally suited for a screensaver, so it didn't take long before the first ones were published, and they remain.

Font WAY to SMALL :(

by Terry on August 8, 2020

Good screensaver but somehow the animation is very slow on my MacBook. The OS is Catalina. How can I fix it?

by Vladyslav on March 19, 2020

I agree with Damien, the font is super small. Weird that you can adjust everything except the font size. I'm reluctant to actually purchase it without knowing whether I can increase the font. The last one I had (RedPill) was brilliant and I really loved it, but it won't work with Catalina : (

I'd give this 5 starts if it was possible to adjust the font size.

Been using this a while and love it. I noticed it stopped working on Mojave so disabled it and wasn't aware until now that it had been fixed. Just updated and it is working for me on Catalina. Although, I'm not sure if it's a bug, but the rain looks so small. I'm sure it's a lot smaller than before. Unless you look very close, it now just looks like green lines almost. Anyone else? Please could this be looked at?

by Damien on December 4, 2019

Fine but doesn't work any more on Catelina. Please provide an update.

by Jos on October 9, 2019

Yes I have the same problem. It would be nice to have it on Mojave

Screensavers Planet: The file's been updated to work on Mojave. Please try again.

Great screensaver however I upgraded my MacOS to Mojave and it stopped working. Please fix as soon as possible. Thanks.

doesn't work for majove which sucks was really liking forward to it

by marshall on October 9, 2018

Wasn't supported after Snow Leopard but managed to still work for whatever reason until Mojave came along. So don't download until developer says otherwise.. =/ Virgin digital game answers download free.

It only plays for a few seconds then shows a 'PURCHASE REGISTRATION' mark instead. MatrixGL is free and has the option to create 3D images from the characters (or not) as well as change the color, et cetera.

by monsterhart on July 28, 2018

this is great though can it just be left at the code going down not the popup text and water marks

This screen saver is amazing! I just thought that a Matrix type screen saver would be really great to have, but I needed one for mac. This one worked perfectly, and I've gotten lots of comments on it.

  • Hello Yarin,

    Thanks for posting to the message board.

    For some reason, with every update to macOS, Apple keeps changing things that cause many screensavers to stop working, particularly the older ones. Unlike with Windows, backward compatibility does not appear to be of significant concern to them. Mojave seems to be especially 'bad' in this regard, and I expect it to break a relatively large number of screensavers found on this site.

    As for Matrix Mania, the last version of macOS it officially supports is Snow Leopard (10.6), so I'm actually surprised it has worked with all versions up to Mojave. Unfortunately, I believe the software is not actively maintained, so an update to Matrix Mania is not likely to be released. You could reach out to the developer at [email protected], but as I said, I don't think it's actively maintained.

    All of this is out of my control, I'm afraid. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Have you tried MatrixGL?


    Rob (Screensavers Planet)2 years ago

  • thank you for the reply,
    no, I wanted this one and I paid for it just a couple weeks ago..
    If there is no possible way to make it work, I would like to get my money back
    as I can't use it now..

    Who do I contact for a refund or a different solution?


    yarin.s2 years ago

  • I can see how that's frustrating. Let me upgrade my Mac to Mojave and poke around for a bit, I don't think it's likely I can fix it, but I'll give it a try anyway.

    Failing that, I believe Matrix Mania is sold through the Mycommerce platform, so I think you would need this page to request a refund, though you could also try contacting the developer via the e-mail address [email protected]

    I'll post back tomorrow with the results of my poking around with Mojave.

    Rob (Screensavers Planet)2 years ago

  • Sorry, it's not working for me either, and nothing I try seems to have an effect.

    Please try requesting a refund via the link or e-mail address above.

    The MatrixGL screensaver does work on Mojave, in case you want to try another one.

    Rob (Screensavers Planet)2 years ago

  • Thank you very much! i'll try it.
